CHIMNEY CAP REPAIRS FOR RUSSELL GARDENS

Some Of The Various Types Of Chimney Caps

Chimney caps protect the spot atop the chimney from leaking water where the roof meets the chimney. Your chimney cap is one of the most overlooked sections when it comes to the adequate preservation of a structure. Most clients don’t give a lot of thought to their Russell Gardens home’s (or business’s) chimney caps integrity. Chimney cap repairs are necessary to prevent your Russell Gardens residence from water damage. Chimney cap repairs are usually made with cement or thin copper, galvanized steel or aluminum sheets that are typically mounted beneath your roof’s shingles. If water gets beyond your chimney cap, there is nothing left to stop it from damaging into your residence’s structure’s walls and ceilings.

A chimney cap’s purpose is to forestall rain water and melting snow from aggressive your dwelling. When installed properly, proper chimney cap repairs will serve you for many years. Expressway provides chimney cap inspections, preventative maintenance and chimney inspections to preserve your chimney as well as your roof and attic from the inevitable rotting caused by excessive water infiltration.

If, when it starts to rain, you notice that there are areas in your home that start to leak, call your local roofing experts immediately.

Leaky roofs almost always cause additional leakage to other parts of your home which can include the growth of sdangerous mold and mildew… and that will then cost you thousands more to replace. Are there shrinking, blistering or curling shingles? Is there any water infiltrating into the attic or into walls that you can see?

How Does A Chimney Cap Become Blocked?

A variety of elements can break the chimney cap and initiate the need for either a chimney cap repair or a chimney cap installation. Squirrels, raccoons and other animals may be tearing at the chimney cap to get in. Rust damage are common with certain types of chimney cap metals. Workers on a Russell Gardens roof may also inadvertently break or dislodge the chimney cap. A chimney cap that has rotted from the elements will eventually cause leaks to your roofing system, as the chimney cap repair helps prevent water damage from happening to your roof deck and shingle system. With so much to gain from having precisely installed or maintained chimney cap, it’s important to ensure that your chimney cap is kept in fine working order.

Some Signs your Chimney Needs A New Cap:

  • If the chimney cap is broken
  • When your chimney cap appears rusted or rotted through
  • If your chimney cap seems to be coming loose
  • the chimney cap is covered with roofing tar
  • You’re installing new roof shingles – or having other roofing work done
  • Your chimney seems to be leaking water into your home.

Whether your Russell Gardens residence has a fireplace that was built with masonry stone or brick – you’ll have to maintain the chimney cap so that it won’t leak.

Chimney Cap Inspections

Many of the structure’s chimneys in Russell Gardens are over 50 years old (or more) and failing. Most of the time, this can be replaced by cutting out the old metal chimney cap with an angle grinder and replacing it with a new chimney cap. Missing mortar joints also need to be renovated and or re-tuckpointed so that the water can easily pass by the chimney cap.

Chimney crown cracks are one of the main reasons that chimney can leak beyond the chimney cap. If your chimney’s cap is rusting and breaking away from the roof, our team will replace all of the areas around the sections in question and help to keep the dwelling’s roof defended. Chimney leakage generally begins to erode chimney masonry below the roofline.

House items can simply develop damage over time. Mold growth – which is typically in dark, undrafted and damp sections are good for growing and harboring risky mold. Because damage happens below the roof and out of sight, property owners may not become aware of any danger until a major safety and property risk occurs. We suggest you call Expressway to check your roof and chimney soon.
